The test chamber will enable scientists to test technologies and structures on Earth before sending them to the moon.
From the forces that keep athletes twirling and sliding, to the weird laws governing the world of the very small, to the far-out concepts of time travel and alternate universes, physics covers a lot of interesting territory. Here, Live Science keeps you abreast of all the fascinating physics discoveries.Physics
The three-body problem, which has plagued science since the days of Isaac Newton, is closer to being solved, scientists say.
Bizarre quantum objects called Q balls could explain why the universe if filled with matter and ultimately why we exist.
A new mechanism for dark matter creation could explain the current six-to-one ratio of dark matter to matter.

A rare 54-page manuscript written by Albert Einstein and Michele Besso could earn a record sum at auction on Tuesday, Nov. 23
The effect, called Pauli blocking, has been predicted for 30 years. Scientists just proved it for the first time.
Wormholes connect two points in space and time and are a staple of science fiction. But are they possible in the real universe?
A new physics breakthrough shows how Einstein's theory of general relativity continues to hold up, even for "balding" black holes.
Astronomers have confirmed the existence of a massive protocluster 11 billion light-years away that acts as an assembly yard for over 60 emerging galaxies.
Physicists have created the first-ever atomic vortex beam — a swirling tornado of atoms and molecules with mysterious properties that have yet to be understood.
Physicists sifting through old particle accelerator data have found evidence of a highly-elusive, never-before-seen process: a so-called triangle singularity.
